Audio "Issues" - Rode VideoMicro

PostSat Mar 13, 2021 7:58 pm

Hello everyone, hope all is well this weekend. I have a few questions, I am using a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4K (BMPCC4K) and I recently purchased a VideoMicro from Rode, it's probably their cheapest one:

https://www.rode.com/microphones/videomicro

The microphone is good for the price, when I go into the settings for my BMPCC4K I have to set it to "3.5mm Left Mic" and "3.5mm Right Mic" so that it captures the audio from the microphone, no problems there.

This week I bought an extension, probably the wrong one, it's a SC1 TRRS extension cable from Rode:

Thinking it was from Rode being the idiot that I am I bought it thinking it would fit with the Video Micro and my Blackmagic camera, but the sound doesn't work. So I have a few theories:

1) I probably bought the wrong extension, if that's the case let me know, and do you know what would be the best extension to buy for my Rode VideoMicro, going to my BMPCC4K.

2) Maybe the extension is good, and I'm just not setting up right, is there some settings in my camera I should input differently?

If that's not clear let me know, I will gladly provide more info, thanks again for always being so helpful!

I think I found the correct one...

Rode Microphones VC1 - Minijack/3.5mm Stereo Extension Cable (3m/10')

That would be the best for the Rode VideoMicro to BMPCC4K right?

Yes, TRRS cable doesn't for a TRS mic. I think Rode also sells adapters to both ways.
